    Yashi, your liberal lefties are hanging out (again).
    I never said he doesn't deserve due process, I said that if the child's family find him first, he probably won't ever see a courtroom. In case you are unclear on the point, in order for him to get the maximum sentence, he would have to go through the process.
    I stand by my first impression, he is a monster, and a disgrace. If this was your child (heaven forbid) would you be so comfy waiting for due process? 22 rape charges over 2 years, that's almost once a month. Along with the other 44 charges that puts this monster (there's that pesky word, again) up to almost 3 incidents a month. Do you think the child could make up or confuse that amount of inappropriate contact? Keep in mind, if she is 11 now, that puts her around 9 when this started.
    You may be more comfy baking him cookies and fluffing his pillow while he awaits his due process, but I can't see him as anything but a monster.
    Nice glass house, Yashi

    Looking bad and being proved guilty are two different things.

    In my head he showed every action of a guilty person. Doesn't mean he's actually guilty, and calling him a monster who needs to get the maximum sentence is more of a reflection on Janet than it is on him. She proved herself judgmental without facts. He proved himself extremely suspicious.

    Let the courts figure it out - I'm confident that once we provide him due process, he'll be behind bars. Then we can call him a monster without simply being judgmental.

    If we didn't have a Constitution, people like Janet would be entertaining their kids with public hangings, skipping right by court trials.

    Innocent? Hmmm, if so, why are the police looking for him? Coincidence? Or running? (22 charges of rape...)

    Whatever you want to think, I hope it gets you through the night, but as for me, this monster is guilty as sin. That's the way I read this, and I'll sleep just fine, thanks.

    I do want to commend this poor little one, for her bravery and having enough strength to expose him, for what he is. I hope she gets the emotional support she is going to need!

    The best thing he can do now, would be to plead guilty, and spare her, and her family, the trauma of a trial. She needs to begin the process of trying to get her childhood back. Prayers for the child and the amily

    ues that's true but you must agree that it doesn't look good at all when you are "fleeing" from the charges. If I was innocent of a charge you can be darn sure I would not be running and hiding and instead would be shouting my innocence from the rooftop!

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    This is not a human, this is a monster!
    He deserves to get the maximum sentence for these crimes, (and I bet he HOPES that the police find him first! If the parents /relatives of the poor little girl find him, he may not make it to jail.)
    Prayers for the child, and her family.
